Just got my first CWL (new C60 GMT) a few days ago. Haven't seen anyone wearing one, though I was told that my order was their first shipment to my country lol

Not seen anyone wearing a CW in Belfast either and to be honest not many have even heard of the brand but people have commented it looks expensive and good quality :)

At dinner last week and of the 7 at the table, 3 were wearing a CWL watch :)
to be fair - me / good friend / his wife (he bought her the Coral she wanted when I noticed a sale!)

friend in the house opposite the pub has a CWL
friends in two directions from the pub have one (one has bought them for son / daughter)

so lots around here!

I've never seen one in public I must say and I've been looking since becoming aware of the brand. Although as a newbie, I'd never even heard of CW since finding a link on a forum - I suspect much of the public aren't aware either.

Only on two occasions...

1) At a Christmas party in London another party goer had a C60 Trident on. We both compared watches then had a beer! He explained it was a present from his other half! Felt like a small world!

2) A rare visit to my GP lead to me noticing a C9 jumping hour on his wrist!

Alighting from the tube at Aldgate this morning I spotted a lovely C700 grand rapide on the wrist of a fellow commuter. First one I have seen in the flesh let alone in the wild. It looked very nice indeed

I have a pal who has one but I'm yet to happen upon a stranger wearing a CW, that's one of the many reasons I like them!

Not really a stranger as such, but I did see a CWL C7 IRR on TV on 'Question of Sport' last weekend, worn by Jonathan Davies. A quick internet search confirmed it was a IRR he picked up in Feb.

I must admit that since getting my 1st CW a couple of years ago, I do keep looking, but I haven't spotted one yet!!

None so far in Canada but haven't had much experience with the brand... so, I have some acquainting to do before I can start spotting them from a distance.

Was at friends leaving drinks this evening and saw someone wearing a C11 Makaira.
